Did somebody say wood flowers? Sola wood flowers are made from wood, hand-crafted into floral petals. They have unique patterns and formations, adding a delicacy to the blossoms. Any color palette and theme can be adopted on these wooden flowers. The only limit is your imagination!

Since the flowers are hand-made, there is a possibility that your flowers may not turn out to be exactly the same way or in the right shape. You may need to reshape them once in a while to bring out their beauty!

Reshaping Sola Wood Flowers 101

Reshaping wood flowers is not a big hassle. They can be easily done by the process that is often called fluffing. It involves some extra steps to reshape the petals so that all the flowers look alike.

So, if you are new to sola flowers, you might be wondering how in the world you can reshape wooden flowers? It’s really simple! They may get damaged over time or don’t turn out to be perfect. After all they are man-made and there are imperfections.

Squished Flowers

Sometimes the petals are squished during crafting or afterwards. Since the flowers have multiple layers, you can easily reshape them with just water. Yes, you heard that right! It doesn’t seem so complicated now, is it? The best thing is that dyed sola flowers can also be reshaped whenever needed.

Let’s Get Fluffing!

If you don’t like how the wedding wood flowers turned out, then you can easily fluff them up in just five minutes!

Here are steps to reshape the petals of sola wood flowers:

To start, you need a small bowl and some warm water.

  1. Pour warm water in a bowl. Remember you don’t need a lot of water.
  2. Dip the wooden flower that needs fixing in water. Ensure that you don’t soak the flower completely. The trick is to just slightly wet the flower.
  3. Now pull back the petals from the layers to fluff the flower. Start from the outer layers and move towards the layers inside.
  4. Leave the flowers to dry for about 12 to 24 hours to make sure that they are completely dry before you arrange them in your floral arrangements.

Pro Tips for Fluffing and Reshaping Sola Wood Flowers

  2. Before you start working on the flowers again, leave them to dry completely
  3. Place the wet flowers in an egg carton to dry so that the shape remains intact
  4. Just to save some time, you can add the color of your choice while the wood flower is drying
  5. Some petals may be hard to reshape, but you can use a toothpick to pull back the petals. This way you can minimize the risk of breaking the inner petals
